There are a lot of scorpions in museum- and university collections around the world. Many of these were collected and identified decades and even centuries ago. In the meantime, scorpion taxonomy has been revised and updated and I guess a lot of the specimens in these collections may have both new status and names.
Ersen Yagmur has recently examined several specimens of Euscorpiidae collected by R. Kinzelbach in Turkey in the 1970s and deposited in the Naturhistorisches Museum Mainz (NMM), Germany and updated their identification.
I examined the specimens of Euscorpiidae collected by R. Kinzelbach in Turkey in the 1970s and deposited in the Naturhistorisches Museum Mainz (NMM), Germany. According to the current taxonomy, one “Euscorpius carpathicus” specimen from the İzmir Province is identified as E. avcii; two “E. carpathicus” specimens from the Mersin Province are identified as E. koci; and one “E. germanus mingrelicus” specimen from the Düzce Province is identified as Alpiscorpius phrygius.
